The Detroit Professional Photographers Association held their annual Awards Banquet on June 20th at the Tiger Club at Comerica Park - Home of the Detroit Tigers in Detroit. It was absolutely fantastic and we all had a terrific time. What a gorgeous place and what a view of the ball-field in front of us. Clint Mclennen was in charge of organizing this and did a great job. The food stations were awesome also. We had a great turn out with about a hundred in attendance. This is the group photo of the new board - our new president is John Glass seated in the middle of the front row, I am on his left as the new President Elect and Clint is on the other side of him as the vice-president in charge of Programming. What an honor to be a part of this great group - next year at this time I will be going in as the new president - wow!. This is my 4th year o the board, last year I was elected to be "slotted" to move up the line to becoming president; I was in charge of setting up the speakers for this year coming up. That was quite a job but I believe we have a great line- up set up. This year I will be working with these speakers to make sure they are all set etc. I am also thrilled that Scott Green, our Jr Past President, will be coming on board as Executive Director - that will make all our job's easier. We all work together so well!
I love this grass roots affiliate of Professional Photographers of Michigan (PPM) and of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) I have learned so much here in the many years I have been an active member and am honored now to be able to give back some.
This is Julie, Brian and myself here. I will be adding some more images later.
